Here we’ve scouted out some fantastic key pieces to keep your wardrobe looking fresh and bang on trend this season. Head up to Old Town asap to get your hands on these beauties!

The Metallic Sandals
£6
A huge player on the spring/summer catwalks, metallics have cemented their status as the surprise hit of the season. These super-shiny heels provide an instant update to your outfit, as well as a sleek, slightly futuristic finish.


The Exaggerated Shoulders

£7
Something of an 80s throwback, boxy shoulders have come back with a bang, and will take your power dressing to a whole new level. This classic monochrome jacket looks great with tights and mules for a chic day time outfit. Add some blingy earrings for extra 80s points.


Pastels

£4
Sherbert hues of blue and pink can be found everywhere at the minute, and add a great pop of colour to an outfit. With a soft suede finish, this little number will work wonderfully with a white shirt for an easy springtime look.


The Denim Dress

£6
Denim has continued to be a dependable part of our wardrobes, but it’s taken a twist this season in the form of pinafores, shirts, and dresses. Chic yet informal, this dress offers plenty of versatility- wear with trainers and a bomber jacket for a relaxed weekend vibe, or dress up with plenty of tribal accessories for festival season.


Gold Accessories

£1.50
While there’s plenty of wonderful trinkets in Prospect at the moment, this little bracelet stood out not only for its amazingly low price, but also for its strong statement details that will add a glam twist to an evening outfit. Team with a black dress for super-sophisticated look.
